“Good Value for $3.00”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

After dinner we walked over to the pier to see the sunset. Admission was $3.00 each, but well worth it. You get a great view up and down the coast from the pier, and as well as enjoying the sunset, there were several pods of dolphins swimming nearby, pelicans and other sea birds. There were a lot of fishermen to talk to and point things out. A very pleasant way to spend an hour,

“Worth every bit of the small price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

It was only $9 for our family of 4 to walk the pier. Worth it! We were able to see all kinds of fish, dolphins, and even a large sea turtle. The kids loved it! Some of the fishermen let the kids hold their pole and then throw their catch back in the water. My daughter was a little scared being on the pier, but she got over it.

“Loved the views from the pier.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

The pier is totally worth $3 entrance fee. They stamp your hand, so you can return for a sunset or for a night walk. To fish, the entrance is $6 (you don't need a license). We were there on a sunny morning and enjoyed wonderful breeze and the views. Water was crystal-clear and we saw plenty of fish. We also saw two dolphins, many rays and a big shark.

“Favorite part of my vacation was the pier!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

Awesome view over the water. It's $3 to be a spectator on the pier and $6 if you want to fish. It was great. Went on all 3 piers while in Panama City and saw dolphins on each and every pier. A guy caught a stingray from this pier. There's a spot where you can rent fishing tackle if you didn't bring any, so no need to lug yours, just rent it for a few bucks. Views from the pier at sunset could not be beat. I highly recommend this. Some may say, "it's just a pier," but you never know what you might see. I saw dolphins and stingrays from this pier and then the day I was leaving there was a large school of mullet hanging around. It was just a cool experience.

“Nice pier view over ocean. Fishing is excellent!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Beautiful views over the water. Half-Hitch is on site for all of your fishing needs. Newbies like us always rent and ask for all the advice we can get and they are always more than happy to oblige! Fun times. Caught a shark!
